DOF Subsea to add AUV services

Offshore staff

BERGEN, Norway – DOF Subsea plans to debut it new service by showing its Slocum gliders.

The gliders will form the cornerstone of DOF Subsea’s Ocean Observation System and can measure absolute and relative current velocities as well as physical and chemical ocean properties, harvest subsea data via acoustic modems, and detect oil in the water column.

DOF Subsea’s onshore flight control center in Houston can deploy the Skandi Explorer AUVs in remote areas. Vessels are required only for launch and recovery as the gliders were designed to conduct truly autonomous missions without surface support vessels. 

All operational control of the AUV is accomplished via remote satellite communications with shore-based staff using an advanced piloting and data aggregation program.
